Who we are

Our story is one of transformation.

SNHU began as a two-room accounting school in Manchester, New Hampshire, in 1932. When enrollments outnumbered seats, we built a 300-acre campus. And in 1995, we took our mission global through online programs. It’s a move that changed SNHU (and higher ed) for good.

Today, we’re an industry leader transforming lives at scale — and not just those of our learners. With exceptional benefits and remote roles in 30+ states, we’ve attracted over 13,000 employees who get to do innovative work that excites them.

Why SNHU? The people.

When we asked employees why they love working at SNHU, we got the same answer countless times: the people. And there’s a good reason for that.

Once we got the cameras rolling, it became clear — we’re passionate. Curious. We’re tenacious, and we’ve got heart. We’re not afraid to say, “Let’s try something new.” But most of all, we’re connected by our vision of a better world for everyone.

Beyond the 9 to 5

A rewarding career isn’t just about work. At SNHU, it’s about connections, life-changing benefits and the opportunity to show up exactly as you are.

A history of innovation


Starting small

SNHU opens its doors in Manchester, NH, as the humble, two-room New Hampshire Accounting and Secretarial School. We begin offering evening classes taught by experienced, educated faculty, and students can start on any Monday of the year.


Supporting our military

The United States enters World War II, and SNHU shifts its focus to supporting service members. Soldiers spend their days in class and nights on base while disabled veterans prepare for life after the military.


Becoming a modern college

New Hampshire Accounting and Secretarial school tries on a new name: New Hampshire College. Equipped with accreditation and degree-granting authority, our enrollment reaches nearly 1,000 students.


Making moves

Quickly outgrowing the downtown Manchester location, New Hampshire College moves out of its rented space and into the location we occupy today: a picturesque 300-acre campus along the Merrimack River.


Launching online classes

This year goes down in the books as a big one — New Hampshire College launches its internet-based distance learning program. (Sound familiar?)


Rebranding big time

New Hampshire College becomes Southern New Hampshire University, expanding its programs — and campus — significantly. Our distance learning program sees explosive growth, reaching 8,000 enrollments in over 23 time zones.


Forging new pathways

SNHU expands access to higher ed with the launch of College for America (CfA). The program leverages partnerships to introduce competency-based education (CBE) to students for whom college feels out of reach.


Going global for good

SNHU launches the Global Education Movement (GEM): the first large-scale online learning initiative for refugees. Born out of partnerships with in-country organizations, it delivers high-quality, low-cost education for displaced learners.


Continuing our mission

SNHU serves over 180,000 students and offers 250+ career-focused degree programs, online and on campus. A lot’s changed over the years, but we’re still dedicated to the same mission: making education accessible and unlocking opportunity for all.
